Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi’s derogatory comments on Indian PM Minister Narendra Modi hasn’t gone well with the people as well as the cricketers. From Gautam Gambhir to Harbhajan Singh, a number of players have slammed Afridi for controversial statements.
The new addition to this list of players taking a dig at the former cricketer. Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh have criticised Afridi for what he said.
While Raina asked Afridi to do something for his own “failed” country rather than focusing on India, Dhawan went a step ahead and wrote that it’s pathetic that in the time of this pandemic, he is still talking about Kashmir. Yuvraj too expressed his disappointment over Afridi’s comments.
Really disappointed by @SAfridiOfficial‘s comments on our Hon’b PM @narendramodi ji. As a responsible Indian who has played for the country, I will never accept such words. I made an appeal on your behest for the sake of humanity. But never again.— yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) May 17, 2020
Jai Hind ????????
Gosh! What all a person must do to remain relevant! Even more so for a nation that is living on alms. So, better do something for your failed nation and leave #Kashmir alone. I am a proud Kashmiri and it is and will always remain an inalienable part of India. Jai Hind!????????❤️????— Suresh Raina???????? (@ImRaina) May 17, 2020
Is waqt jab saari duniya corona se lad rahi hai us waqt bhi tumko kashmir ki padi hai.— Shikhar Dhawan (@SDhawan25) May 17, 2020
Kashmir humara tha humare hai aur humara hi rahega. Chaiyeh 22 crore le ao, humara ek, sava lakh ke barabar hai . Baaki ginti apne aap kar lena @SAfridiOfficial
Earlier, India spinner Harbhajan Singh had hit back at Shahid Afridi after the former Pakistan cricketer made controversial comments about Kashmir.
Bhajji bunltly said that he had crossed all the limits and the relations between the two cricketers are now ruined up. “I thought he was our friend but this not how a friend behaves. Ye badtameezi hai (It’s rude),” Bhajji said Harbhajan said on Sports Tak.
Afridi recently visited an area of PoK, where he is seen giving speeches between some soldiers and people.
